The Wait is Over: TeleAdapt Announces MediaHub HD™ is Now Shipping
New MediaHub HD Features a Single HDMI Cable Connection to the TV and Bluetooth® for Wireless Audio Streaming, a First in In-Room Entertainment
TeleAdapt's mission to keep hotel guests connected entered a new generation last week as they officially announced that their new MediaHub HD is now available for purchase, in mass production and fulfilling orders. Plus, the MediaHub HD Stereo Bluetooth function is fully compatible with the recently released Apple iPhone OS 3.0 for wireless audio streaming.
With Stereo Bluetooth technology, hotel guests can wirelessly stream audio from an iPhone, iPod Touch, or other A2DP-enabled smart phones and computers such as the Palm Pre or Nokia N97, through the in-room TV speakers or stereo without leaving the device tied to the connectivity panel, a first in in-room technology.
"The demand over the past year has been intense and now the wait is over," said Brown. "We are fulfilling orders for the MediaHub HD to hotels all over the world who want to bring their hotel rooms to life with cutting-edge in-room entertainment technology."
Currently, there are no other options available for hotels as simple as MediaHub HD for wireless connectivity. Brown explains: "Media connectivity used to be plug and play. Now it's just play!"
MediaHub HD also features a single HDMI back-end cable, which means only a single HDMI port is required on the TV and installation is notably simplified and less expensive.
"MediaHub HD works with any TV and/or video system with an available HDMI port," reports Colin Corby, technical director for TeleAdapt. "Interoperability is not an issue with this new product."
More and more hotel guest are checking in with their own in-room entertainment, including downloaded music and video and web-based content. Demand for in-room entertainment "their way" is intensifying. Hotels agree: a recent American Hotel & Lodging Association report ranks in-room entertainment number two in hotel amenity importance by hoteliers, just after Wi-Fi availability.
"The MediaHub HD's single-HDMI cable connection to the TV means installation is less expensive and the Bluetooth feature has that 'wow-factor' guests are willing to pay for," continues Brown. "Plus, Apple's inclusion of the A2DP, or advanced stereo audio profile, on the new iPhone OS 3.0 makes the MediaHub HD an even more solid in-room technology investment for hoteliers."
TeleAdapt helps properties around the world bring their hotel rooms to life by freeing the guest from headphones and small screens during their stay, enhancing their overall in-room experience.
